Wow! Today marks my 6-month blogging anniversary! That’s right, 6 months have already passed since I first launched Zero to Zeros. Sometimes, I can’t believe just how quickly time flies by. It seems like just yesterday that I was finishing up writing my blog’s inaugural post, eager to connect with the DGI community and embark on my investing journey. And yet, it was indeed 6 months ago, on March 21st, that Zero to Zeros went live with its first piece of content.
To be honest, when I first started blogging, I didn’t have very high expectations. I figured that nobody would really be interested in reading some inexperienced 24-year-old (well, actually, 23-year-old at the time!) kid’s crap and that it would take at least a year of consistent writing before I’d average even a dozen visitors a day. I never would have imagined that Zero to Zeros would be where it is today…
Here are a few key metrics to give you an idea. Since March 21st, there have been:
– 185 comments (370 if you include mine, as I always respond to each and every single comment)
– 5519 unique visitors
– 9056 site visits
– 20043 page views
These days, I average anywhere between 75 to 125 page views per day, occasionally breaking the 200 mark, and sometimes going as high as 400+ views. Now, I have no doubt that there are plenty of blogs out there that have grown far more quickly than mine in the same time span; but to me, this is still progress that completely blows anything I expected out of the water.
Beyond the raw numbers, and perhaps most importantly, I have forged relationships with some wonderful individuals from this awesome DGI community; individuals such as Jason from Dividend Mantra, Ryan from My Dividend Growth, and my Belgian gamer/investor doppelganger from No More Waffles, just to name a few. These are people that I have never met even once in real life, yet who feel like friends. We are all united by the same pursuit, we all share our journeys on our blogs, and we all support and encourage one another, like true kindred spirits.
I have enjoyed every single minute spent blogging over the last 6 months, and I have no doubt that I will enjoy every single minute spent blogging over the next 6 months just as much.
Thank you to all my readers. Your viewership is sincerely appreciated!
